This has to be one of my favorite reissue Fender Stratocaster guitars. It has the classic 70s headstock that is slightly a bit bigger than the normal Fender Stratocaster head stocks. I also like the feel and the comfort of the neck over the 5o's reissues or original Fender Stratocaster guitars. The look and the feel is classic and the pickups are even better than the standard ones in the Fender stratocasters, so overall this is probably the best offering that Fender has put together.

SOUNDS


What can you say about the tone of the Fender Stratocaster. It has a unique tone different from pretty much every other guitar that Fender has ever built. Very much different than the fender telecaster which has a good clean tone any unique sustain to it. This guitar features single coil pickups and though they sometimes can get a little buzzy and get the hum kicking, they still are a classic sounding rock 'n roll guitar. The clearcoat and transparent body with no paint is a classic look to this guitar. Rosewood fretboard helps balance out the highs that this guitar naturally has.

I suggest playing this guitar with a fender clean amp or even a Marshall plexi amplifier. You can get a great clean tone with a Fender amp where you can get a good rocking Jimi Hendrix type tone was the Marshall Plexi circuit amp. This guitar also sounds great when you have a digital delay in the mix as well as maybe some chorus or any other affect pedal that you might have or even a rack unit that you might have. These guitars take pedals very well and you can still hear the natural tone and beauty that this guitar has.

OVERALL OPINION

At nnew you can find these guitars right around $1300 online or in most guitar shops. I highly recommend anyone only Fender Stratocaster at some point. This is the kind guitar that can be passed down generation to generation and can stay in the family. It's a solid built American guitar and my absolute favorite guitar from the Fender Stratocaster reissues.
